Mission Statement

We will be the body of Christ in our Community by Connecting with God, Growing in Discipleship, and Serving the World.

Next Sermon for December 3rd

Last Sunday we celebrated Christ the King Sunday, the last Sunday in the Christian year before we enter Advent. Why is Christ the King Sunday an important day for Christians? Because Christ the King Sunday offers us a time to reflect on the power of Jesus to bring peace and order to our lives, our church, and the world for the good of all of God’s creation, especially the most vulnerable, making it the perfect Sunday to conclude our sermon series Seven Things For Kids. 


This seven-week series culminated in our call to care for the whole child – spiritually, physically, mentally, emotionally, and relationally. And, on Sunday we committed to this work as we welcomed new members, celebrated a baptism, blessed over 200 bags of food to be sent into the community, and took time to reflect on and personally commit to the ways that God is calling each of us to reflect God’s grace through our prayers, our presence, our gifts, our service, and our witness.


I am in awe of the ways that God and the Holy Spirit is working and moving at Oak Grove United Methodist Church, and grateful for the ways in which you are faithfully responding to God’s call upon your life.


The Christian year begins this Sunday with the first Sunday of Advent as we prepare our hearts and lives for the coming of the messiah. I look forward to preparing our hearts and our lives for the coming of the Lord with you!


May your week be filled with Grace upon Grace,

This Sunday, December 3rd please join us from 9-11 am for “Create and Celebrate” an event where we can come together to prepare our hearts and minds for the birth of Jesus. This will be a time for food, fellowship, and fun! There will be several craft tables and fresh advent wreath-making for all to enjoy. Beyond the crafts, we are looking forward to cherishing moments with one another and creating lasting memories.


The Children’s Ministry Staff is so EXCITED that we will have our first children’s time this Sunday in Whitehurst Hall during the 11 am service. Please make sure that your children are checked into their classroom by 10:55 a.m. Students will return to Children’s Church immediately following Children’s time and authorized check-out will take place from their classrooms after the service.


Advent provides an opportunity for our church community to come together. Whether it’s reading a story from the calendar, lighting the Advent candles, or engaging in acts of kindness, these shared experiences highlight the importance of love and faith. May this Advent season be filled with countless blessings and memorable moments for your family. We look forward to celebrating this joyous season together!


In Christ,
